As a person who works in care i would like to say a massive thank you to all care staff who like myself have been working through this situation. Some people might not understand our jobs are not in critical care units but a high percentage of us are working with vulnerable people in a variety of settings. we can accept phrases like social distancing shielding self isolation but people with alzheimers and dementia do not and it can be very difficult to inform this group that their families do love them and would like nothing better than a cuddle. I admire the professionalism shown by the carers whose love is unconditional but a necessary aspect of daily living. We also may encounter people with symptoms of Covid 19 how can you tell a person that they are very unwell. To you all a massive well done and keep smiling
